Spread a little joy

A Thought for the Week

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” ~ Leo Buscaglia   

“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.” ~ H. Jackson Brown  

“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” ~ Buddha

    The Buddha quote reminds me, especially if I’m having a moment where I feel like I am just giving away something that I have…that this only helps to make the world a better place. And in that thought, and that more light comes to this world…what a beautiful gift to give!!

  2. Thanks for those great thoughts. I also love this quote by Buddha: “If you light a lamp for somebody, it will also brighten your own path. “

    Yes Lance, the act of giving is, in itself, a beatiful gift, so in giving once, we give twice – that must be why what we give comes back to us multiplied, especially when consciously given with love ;-)

    Hi Betsy,

    I hadn’t come across that one, but it is beautiful also. Thanks for sharing it :-)
